    I just downloaded the Infamous 2 “Ultimate Edition”, but I have to wait until my brother quits playing Wheel of Fortune on the Wii! You would think he’d get tired of solving puzzles, but NOOOOOOOO! I probably won’t have a good amount of time to really play it until at least Thursday. I’m going to try and shoot footage for my final film/photo project this weekend, then edit it during my last 2 days of my class Monday and Tuesday. I work from 2 to 8 tomorrow, and when I’m not doing this project, I’ll be immersed in E3 coverage. I’ll definitely watch Sony’s conference Monday night! Wednesday, our class will go to Cincinatti to an art museum as a celebration for finishing the course. Should have more time for games the week after E3…or I may be working more hours at my grocery store.

    Finally I am done playing Starhawk for a while. I have been busting my A*s off trying to get the platinum and last night right around 10 pm I finally got that dang Starhawk platinum. Now I have 7 platinum’s and wish I had over 20 lol. I don’t read anything book wise anymore but I do read the blog all the time does that count as reading something non book wise? lol. Oh and watching countless stuff on Netflix and gearing up for the Dover race on fox this Sunday in Nascar. I love nascar and hints why I love and prefer racing games and one of my platinum’s is Nascar 2011. Now my platinums isn’t on this psn account its on my main slick _ t one. When you look at the name I’m commenting from now you won’t see jake crap lol.

    Can your blog team please fix my SLICK _ T psn account so it will automatic post comments in the blog. I’m having to always use my other accounts I made on ps3 to post on here. My main account is my Plus account as well another words my PAYING account yet I never can post on the blogs with it. What is going on there? I never get a reply about it on here. I called Sony over it and they said they don’t deal with the blog. So who do I talk to or ask to fix this? I’d really love to be able to use my MAIN psn account to comment with in these blogs. I look stupid talking about my platinums and trophies and then people go look and the account I’m replying to has nothing on it and it confuses them and I get troll hate comments back bringing it up.

    oh my god i just rented a movie off the video side of the store, i didnt know we could now stream them, we dont have to wait for the download, hopefully you guys integrate the video side with ps plus too or have a monthly subscription service

    @Mathwim: I figured that but I’m wondering what we’re suppose to get Tuesday. It is a new month and the Sony Conference isn’t till 5:30pm.

    Morgan said in a reply to comment #9 on the store update post that the Plus preview would be up Wednesday. If they were going to keep all the new stuff a surprise for E3 that’s fine. It just sucks when he says it’ll be up Wednesday but it never shows up.

    I’m super excited for E3 and to see all the new stuff Sony announces. I really hope they had even more value to Plus.

    I’m thinking about getting a vita and keeping it this time but I don’t want to get one now and they drop the price after E3 cause then I’d be super pissed. Any word on a price drop on vita at E3? Anyone hear any news on that? I already have a ipod for video recording and internet media type stuff but a vita would suit better for just gaming I guess. I need those sticks for gaming man lol. Anyways anyone know if a price drop will hit vita on Monday after E3?

    Scratch that on second thought I won’t buy a vita cause I returned my last one cause it had a screen defect where bad lines would show going up and down during dark grey screens or the green menu screen. It bugged the fire outta me and my wife even brought it to my attention to. I google it just now to see if I was just unlucky with a bad unit and it seems wide spread as a common issue with the vita display, I’m sorry but that off color lines on dark screens just isn’t normal and bugs me. We shouldn’t see though lines at all no matter what and if it isn’t fixed then I won’t be buying a vita even if you drop it to 50 bucks. I had people on here in the blogs last week saying I was trolling and lied and that the vita has no such problem lol. I had it and I looked on youtube and people show videos of it live on camera and its what I was going through. Is this widespread on vita or is ours bad units and not all do that? If so then I’ll just stick with my non lines ipod screen.

    Playing: Dragon’s Dogma (easily one of the best games this generation)

    Reading: Newsfeeds, BBC on-line

    Watching (-ed): Snow White and the Huntsman (ignore the more cynical reviews, the movie is lush and engaging)

    Re: E3. I’m expecting A LOT from Sony. #1, I assume that they’ve worked out that whole remote play b.s. having signed a deal with Gaikai or OnLive or whomever. Hopefully, we see the Vita turned into the multimedia, gaming powerhouse tablet competitor that it should be – e-reader, better browser, etc.. A price drop with a slew of new games and functionality would help the device immensely.

    A PS4 announcement would be good for Sony too. If they’re last to market again next gen, they might as well close up shop.

    @S-L-I-C-K-T
    Yeah, I know, I had problems with it too. The thing is that the A-9 core processor is pretty buggy and cheap. It’s tough physically, but you can get glitches.

    If anyone has any problems with theirs, do the following:

    #1 Restart the system by removing the memory card. (This won’t work if the Vita is frozen, just malfunctioning) if it doesn’t work, move to step 2.

    #2 Press and hold On/Off button. (30 seconds) then restart the Vita, if it doesn’t work, move to step 3.

    #3 Press and hold On/Off button + PS button + R button. (30 seconds) then restart, if not…

    #4 Retry step #2.

    Usually will work properly immediately after you’ve restarted it.

    And that’s how you fix your Vita.
    I hope this will help others in any way possible.
